The amazing "identify that Doom song" thread.

Not sure if it's been asked yet, but does anybody have an idea what that "song" in deus vult2's m 23 is called? Or who made it?

The DoomWiki entry says "Crocodile Cacophony (K. Rool's Theme)" from Donkey Kong Country 2 by David Wise, sequenced by Andreas and Savas Oulassoglou.

I never thought a donkey kong game could sound that epic...

 

EDIT: Also, silly me for not checking the wiki, but sifting through the entire readme of that wad... :/

That's where I thought it would be too. It's incredibly amazing the readme has no basic info on the midis used when it includes stuff like this. :D

                    "Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious
                     triumphs, even though checkered by failure... than to 
                     rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor

                    "Every act of conscious learning requires the 
                     willingness to suffer an injury to one’s self-esteem. 
                     That is why young children, before they are aware of 
                     their own self-importance, learn so easily; and why 
                     older persons, especially if vain or important, cannot
                     learn at all." - Thomas Szasz

FREEDOM OF INFORMATION (BASED ON HACKER ETHIC)
IN THE CONTEXT OF DOOM

I believe that access to anything (i.e. tools and information) that furthers 
the intellectual development of the individual should be completely 
unrestricted. Furthermore, I believe that unlimited access to such things can
free the individual's intellectual abilities from many socio-economic 
constraints; a talented programmer in India can explore his/her potential
just as well as any programmer in the Western world, provided the resources
that Freedom of Information brings.

Freedom of information in the context of Doom Modification, it is a virtue 
to be generous with your work and their resources. If you created something 
like a texture or map, allow it to be used in future projects. Try not to go
around and limit others from using what you've made, after your work is done,
leave it be, move on, don't clutch onto your work and render it dead with
copyrights and self-important permission to do this and that, don't make it 
hard on others because of ego; let it grow by giving it away so others can 
develop it... after all, John Carmack was generous enough to give away 
Doom's source code, from which we are able to evolve Doom as a nonprofit 
community through many sourceports and projects that kept Doom fresh through 
the test of time and made it all the more beautiful in the end.

Finally have some songs to share with the thread. I culled all these midis from Doom 2 X-Treme and its sequel Doom 2 X-Treme Gold, however some of these I have heard in at least one other place. There's no metadata with these so that's a no go, unfortunately. Almost all of the other music from these two wads I was able to identify, even very recently, but these last few's sources are eluding me.

Map25 music also appears in slayer.wad in the intermission, no idea where it really comes from though.

 

Gold Map20 is Floghorn from Duke 3D Atomic Edition.

Gaaah, of course it'd be the most nondescript, forgettable song in the game. I don't even like that level much either.

does anyone know what song this is a MIDI of? i think it's a really nice song, but i don't have a clue where it could've come from.

 

 

actually, there's a bunch of songs from the megawad i find interesting, but don't know where they come from. i'll link a few more videos here, but i'm mostly interested in the first one i showed.

I'm particularly interested in the JokeWAD called It Only Gets Worse.
What I know:
- MAP03 and MAP11 use modified OST, MAP14 uses an intact one, and MAP04's track is one of the reject compositions for the original game.
- MAPs 07, 08, 10/16 and 17 have Grant Kirkhope's compositions for the Rare games Banjo-Kazooie and Banjo-Tooie. (This doesn't include the "boss battle" theme, which is played on MAPs 08, 10 and 12 when an overpowered and partially invisible Baron of Hell/Hellknight is fought.)
- Everything else that is not included above would be a pleasure to me if you could tell. ^^

MAP18 is "In the Grip of Madness" from PSX Doom (Hell Keep, The Factory, The Mansion), compressed to buggery.

 

Also MAP07 of that WAD was actually one of the first videos I saw when discovering Doom existed for PC and people made mods for it, this must have been back around 2008 and I haven't seen it since then until now..thanks I think? xD

BATTLE-F


New Music               : Yes I FORGOT WHERE I GOT IT, BUT IT RULES.
                          I GOT IT OFF OF THE SUPERPAC CD-ROM I THINK.
                          FROM COMPUTER LIFE MAGAZINE

They're all MIDI, but none of them have useful information.

Sorry for the bump but I found the source to these songs. Heres the disc the text file mentions https://archive.org/details/ComputerLife_SuperPac_Ziff-s_Publishing_1995

 

You can find them in demos > blueribn > psstyles > basemidi

Hi,it's me again.I need your help to identify this song i found long ago in a midi compilation file.I discovered that this midi was used here,but the author didn't insert any info about the songs just "New music for DOOM, DOOM 2, and HERETIC by Green Day, Nirvana, Nine Inch Nails, Metallica and more!".
